Objective3D seminars showcase DDM capabilities to a full house

Objective3D ran the first of the seminar series planned for 2015 with impressive attendance at both the Melbourne and Sydney seminars.
 

With a full house and an International line up, guests at the Sydney and Melbourne Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM) seminars were treated to a wealth of information from professionals across all facets of the Additive Manufacturing industry. 

The focus of this first series was how 3D Printers can augment and accelerate traditional manufacturing processes and production. Bender Kutub, Applications Engineer for Stratasys USA, shared his experience as a Mechanical Engineer with a strong focus on the analysis and design of composite materials and structures. His proficiency in testing and manufacturing of composites brought a unique perspective to the role 3D printing can play in most industries and manufacturing sectors. His main interest in Aerospace and Automotive applications of Additive Manufacturing also showcased the durability and high performance capabilities of 3D Printing technologies.

Other topics covered included leasing arrangements, Government Grants for Research and Development, as well as the capabilities and unique services offered by Objective3D parts, our 3D Printing division.  Melbourne guests were also treated to a tour of our World Class facility and 3D Printing bureau. 

DATES FOR THE DIARY:

More seminars are planned throughout the year:

June 2015 - SA and WA

July 2015 - Vic and NSW

Delivering High Quantities of Prototypes Fast

Objective3D Direct Manufacturing produces parts using a range of additive and conventional manufacturing technologies. We offer tailored solutions for your project’s needs. If your project requires larger quantities of small parts – fast, Laser Sintering is the best technological solution for you. Per-part pricing is reduced as quantities increase, but there are more advantages to using Laser Sintering for small prototypes than price alone.

Laser Sintering (LS) provides strong, versatile and geometrically intricate components made from filled and un-filled nylon materials that are ideal for fit and form verification and functional testing. Prototypes made with LS are created quickly and offer robust solutions for your project.
FAST Delivery Laser Sintering can provide sturdy, functional prototypes as little as 24 hours. Multi-component designs can be incorporated into single structures, allowing engineers to produce complex features and geometries in one print, and eliminating the need…

Commodore Ute to US: 100,000 votes needed!

According to The Age Drive and an article by Barry Park, we are again set to export our Commodore Ute to the US.

The article is as follows:

US website rallies to GM's Twitter call of 'If you ask for an El Camino ute, we'll do it'.

An off-the-cuff quip from General Motors' newly appointed chief marketing officer could be just the thing to help Holden's cause to sell the Commodore ute in the US.

Joel Ewanick, who made the jump from Hyundai to the US car maker late last year, recently joined the social networking service Twitter. He soon started interacting with Chevrolet fans, with many of them asking for the car maker to re-introduce a vehicle based on a cross between a truck (ute) and a car.

In response to one passionate request for a new-age El Camino, Ewanick wrote: ''Well, we need you and 100,000 more of your best friends.''

Canberra para-athlete Scott Reardon wins gold with 3D Printed Spike Plates

Canberra para-athlete Scott Reardon has sprinted his way to gold at the IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha with victory in the T42 100m for leg amputees.

The fastest qualifier coming into the finals, Reardon, using a 3D Printed Spike Plate, got his nose in front to stop the clock in a time of 12.13 seconds - a mere one-hundredth of a second in front of Russia's Anton Prokhorov.
It was sweet revenge for Reardon, the 25-year-old having to share the gold medal two years ago at the world championships in Lyon in 2013 with Germany's Heinrich Popow​.
"You come to championships to win championships and that's the most important thing," Reardon said.
"I probably didn't get the time I wanted, but when people look back, how I got there won't matter. "It will just show me as world champion, and that's so exciting."
The result is the culmination of more than a decade of determination and training.

The Spike Plates which Reardon used in the …
